A Frenchman was once told to put the colors "red, green, pink and yellow" in a sentence.
He thinks for a moment, then says :After I red the newspaper, I hear "green, green". I pink up the phone and say "yellow ?". Big grin

Makes perfect sense to me, he expects four people to attend a dinner at a Japanese restaurant one evening, after the awards ceremony.
The menu will consist of bear miting toumoro, a little known meat version of tempura.

Keski va pa ?

I guess there are (in percentage) more French people speaking English than English native speakers speaking French.

C'est vrai?

707CMF - Soooooooo typical - ugh, I get those all the time back at work.

It's either that or its full of southern slang and I have no idea what half of it means.

I'll give it a try.. for fun

as for enjoying [company name], we shall propose to have a beer meeting tomorrow evening after work and maybe why not want to eat in a restaurant afterwards. Please tell your availability and eventually
any idea to improve the process!

Sounds better no? even though wrong and bad English at its best.

Oh my God.....I just read that with my internal voice saying it out loud ....................in my uncles voice.

He talks just like that.

Someone French was definitely spelling phonetically.

Kind of like how I spell in French.

Well, being a (non-native) Francophone, I understood it completely, but really...if you're going to try and speak English, at least make an effort to read occasionally, or take a grammar class so you can at least spell somewhat correctly.
